    This is my TAT:

    I have already had it touched up once, but around my colar bone and top of the shoulder, The ink just doesn't want to stay. I'm anal about stupid stuff like that, so if i get it touched up again, will I just eventually reject it? Buttons or anyone else, is this normal for certain spots to just not hold ink?

    the skin must be stretched to properly to get the ink to sit properly in the right layer of skin. It may be that that particular area is tough to get stretched and that your artist doesnt have that aspect down yet. lets see what AB says.

    edit: there is also a LOT of motion that goes on in that area as you move your arm this could be a problem as well?

    Two toys has it right with the motion thing. There are certain areas which are just a bitch to heal. Anyone with sleeves will know how hard it is to heal the elbow 'ditch'. Collarbone/shoulder area is another one because you're constantly moving it around. I'd say get that area touched up again and hope for the best.

    Go to a different artist + don't move your arm for 2 weeks after the tattoo.
